The second installment in this middle grade series—now available in paperback—is a gothic-tinged fantasy from New York Times bestselling author Gregory Funaro. The book follows the adventures of Oliver and Lucy Tinker as they defend the magical Blackford House from evil forces that threaten to destroy it.
Having defeated the Garr, who lurked within the enchanted woods of Watch Hollow, Lucy and Oliver Tinker now have the home they’ve always dreamed of—Blackford House. Powered by a giant magical cuckoo clock and full of curious rooms and improbable knickknacks, Blackford House brims with the promise of new adventures.
Yet when a strange governess arrives from England—bringing with her the Kojima twins, Agatha and Algernon—the Tinker children’s once bright future quickly begins to dim. Distant relatives of the original owners of the Blackford estate, the Kojimas claim to be the rightful heirs to the Tinkers' new home. But Lucy and Oliver are quick to realize that they have a bigger problem: a great evil has entered Blackford House, cursing it, haunting it with a malevolent Minotaur, and turning its familiar halls into an ever-changing labyrinth.
Despite the controversy over who is the rightful owner of Blackford House, the Tinkers must now join forces with the Kojimas and a menagerie of magical clock animals to escape this labyrinth and save Blackford House, all while a new monster lurks around the corner.
